Sharp Low

Round Barrow(s)


Thomas Bateman was here in 1848. His excavtions revealed two crouched skeletons. At the barrow's centre was a stone, underneath it was a bull's horn and another unidentified bone.
The western burial also contained pot sherds, animal bones and
an iron knife. The knife probably dates to the Anglian period and a re-use of the barrow.
